The Telstar satellite - launched in the early 1960s - provided only brief intervals for transmission since it was not geo-stationary. Nevertheless, the advance was the inspiration for a hit record. A demonstration TV broadcast showing scenes from Europe and North America (including a press conference by President Kennedy) introduced Telstar to viewers. In this video, we also see then-Vice President Johnson talking by phone via Telstar.
